A summary is given on 1 a study of the meterological factors pertinent to the ozone layer and in particular bottomside observation of its thermal emission 2 the design, fabrication and laboratory checkout of a fixed field ozonosphere radiometer and 3 the test results of radiometric sky measurements. These experiments established that, although apparently weak perturbations, structure does exist in the ozonosphere, and that this structure, in the Santa Barbara area, is somewhat regular. If the structure is assumed to be persistent for periods longer than the observation time 10 minutes, these regularities could be interpreted as waves or rollers in the ozonosphere. All data were recorded as time varying measurements utilizing a fixed zenith field of view radiometer. The radiometer measured the difference signal between sky emission centered in the ozone band and emission at the short wavelength wing of the band, thus balancing out grey effects of undetected clouds and of water vapor.
